MorDance is a trailblazing, women-led ballet company striving to innovate, elevate, and diversify the ballet landscape to convey a true reflection of our contemporary world. Over the past decade, we have embodied our mission to break free of ballet’s historically homogenous structures by creating groundbreaking original works, centering underrepresented voices and narratives, and leading workshops for thousands of students in under-resourced communities across New York City. With a firm belief that world-class ballet should be available to audiences of all backgrounds, we work to break down barriers and inequalities in ballet to cultivate empowered environments for artistic expression.
Over ten seasons, MorDance has produced and staged over twenty original ballets at prominent New York venues including Battery Dance Festival, Symphony Space, Aaron Davis Hall, Gerald Lynch Theater, and Baryshnikov Arts Center. MorDance has held residencies at the Silo at Kirkland Farm, Mana Contemporary, Kaatsbaan Upstream, and Vineyard Art Projects; and was named resident dance company of the Sheen Center in 2016.
Our 2023-24 season will epitomize the breadth of our commitment to furthering accessibility, diversity, and creativity in the field of ballet. This season’s repertoire will transform themes of activism and humanity into captivating movement as we strive to inspire audiences to embrace more civic engagement, empathy, and social responsibility.
